“The so called ‘research scene’ that Wang Lijun refers to is either an outright execution site with medical vans, or possibly a medical ward, where peoples’ organs are surgically removed,” said Ethan Gutmann, who has published extensively on organ harvesting from Chinese prisoners of conscience.
David Matas, an award-winning Canadian human rights lawyer who co-authored, with former Canadian Secretary of State David Kilgour, the 2006 ground-breaking report “Bloody Harvest”  revised and published as a book in 2009) on organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, said, “In effect they’re not killing by injection, but paralyzing by injection, and taking the organs out while the body is still alive,” referring to Wang’s operations.
Before he kicked off the biggest political storm in recent Chinese communist history last February after attempting to defect at a U.S. Consulate in southwestern China, police chief Wang Lijun supervised the cutting of thousands of organs from the bodies of prisoners of conscience—while they were still alive.
Wang was merely a mid-ranking officer in a dark conspiracy that reached to the top of the Chinese Communist Party........

School For Torture Targets Falun Gong in China
Masanjia labor camp used to teach police how to break wills
Last Updated: April 29, 2013 5:47 am
Chinese were shocked and outraged early this month to read that a labor camp in the northeast of the country, called Masanjia, has for years been administering extreme and excruciating torture against those detained in it. Much of the detail for that story was obtained from a diary smuggled out of the camp in the vagina of one of the survivors.
But horrified readers never found out the identity of victims, or the purpose of the torture and brainwashing they were subject to, or the sinister and crucial role of the camp in carrying out the most sweeping campaign of persecution orchestrated in contemporary Chinese history. 
Former Chinese Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin was behind that campaign, and his chief lieutenants personally visited the Masanjia facility, and presented awards to guards for devising the most innovative and effective techniques of inflicting pain.

China's Plan To Stop Harvesting Prisoner's Organs-Will Be Almost Impossible To Enforce
Zhang Xinyou was one of the lucky ones.  "If you don't do a liver transplant, you'll die," doctors told the cirrhosis sufferer, recalled his wife Gao Li.
Zhang, 59, got his liver, but where it came from is something he doesn't want to ask. "Most of the organs here come from executed prisoners," Gao, 57, says in hushed tones inside a transplant ward at the Tianjin First Center Hospital, the country's largest transplant facility. "I haven't considered whether it's right or wrong. All we want is a good liver."..........

Falun Gong
Since the Chinese Communist Party banned Falun Gong in China in 1999, the Chinese authorities have utilized a wide variety of mechanisms in their efforts to force adherents to renounce their faith and ultimately wipe out the spiritual group.

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) aims to provide the medical community and society with objective findings of unethical and illegal organ harvesting. Organ harvesting, the removal of organs from a donor, without obtaining prior free and voluntary consent, is considered a crime against humanity, as well as a threat to medical science in general.

Forced Organ Harvesting in China
The harvesting of organs from executed prisoners in China started in 1984, when a respective law was implemented and allowed the practice. First public notice of this practice is linked to a testimony of Dr. Wang Guoqi before U.S. Congress in 2001. This form of harvesting organs from executed prisoners is worldwide banned as unethical organ harvesting.

These unethical organ procurement practices gained a completely new dimension when in 2006 first witnesses and the Kilgour & Matas Report claimed that organs were harvested from living prisoners of conscience, mostly from detained Falun Gong practitioners. The circumstances would suggest to describe the organ procurement as organ harvesting “on demand”, or forced organ harvesting because organs are harvested without acceptable consent and the practice jeopardizes the lives of the donors, who are mostly killed in the process.

Phone interviews by David Kilgour and David Matas has unveiled that in 17 locations in China organs were procured from detained Falun Gong practitioners, which further suggests that the organ harvesting is a widespread and systematic, state sanctioned malpractice.
